Christmas Ride - 11th December 2016 - 76.6km

Date: Sunday 11th December 2016 
Time: 08:30am
Where: Sigma Sport, Hampton Wick

Get into the festive spirit and join us on Sunday 11th December for our Christmas Ride. Our last ride of 2016, we've created the perfect seasonal route and have joined forces with Giro Cycles Cafe to provide a complimentary coffee and cake to finish the ride.

The ride consists of a 76.6 kilometre (47 mile) loop which features 542 metres (1772 feet) of elevation.

Heading out through Bushy Park, the route skirts through Walton on Thames and Chertsey out towards Ash Vale. From there we turn, passing through Normandy (bring your passport) and take a scenic ride back through Cobham to finish at Giro Cycles Cafe in Esher.

There will be three different groups covering the same route. These will vary in speed to cater for all fitness abilities. The rides will be lead by store staff and will leave at 8:30AM on Sunday December 11th from outside the Sigma Sport store in Hampton Wick. We aim to arrive at Giro Cycles Cafe between 11:15AM and 12:30PM depending on the speed of the group.

A map and profile of the route can be viewed or uploaded to a compatible GPS device using this link.

Group one will be aiming to average around 19-20mph (31-32kph). 20mph is an average speed so there will be times when the speed is actually higher than this so you will need a decent level of fitness and the ability to ride in a group is essential!

Group two will aim to average between 17-18mph. Again this is an average speed so speeds will be in excess of 18mph in places. You will need to have had good group riding experience again for this group and will need a good level of fitness to complete the distance.

Group three will be aiming to average around 16-17mph. You will still need to have experience of group riding and sitting on another rider’s wheel but this ride will endeavour not to drop anyone in the group, within reason.

Group one will set off first, followed by group two and finally group 3. This means that should you find yourself in a group that is too fast for your taste you can always sit up and wait for the next group on the road to come along.

Please note: clipless pedals are mandatory.
